History

Originally, a magnet center was established at nearby Lincoln High School before moving to Wilson High School from 1985 until 1989. Bravo Medical Magnet is named after Francisco Bravo M.D., a well-known physician who practiced in East Los Angeles; established his own clinic; and founded a scholarship fund for needy high school students interested in the health science professions. Groundbreaking on Francisco Bravo Medical Magnet High School started in 1987 and construction was completed in 1990. Dr. Rosa Maria Hernández, who was instrumental in the school's construction, served as principal from the school's opening until 2003 when she took over a district level position. She was succeeded by Maria Torres-Flores who lead Bravo to recognition as a National Blue Ribbon High School.  Ms. Torres-Flores retired at the end of the 2016-2017 school year and was succeeded by current principal Dr. Luis M.
